Dr Helena Lass is a practicing psychiatrist specializing in Mental Wellness and the Founder of Wellness Orbit. She is passionate about medical science, the functioning of the human mind, entrepreneurship and the role of awareness in each of these areas.

How Dr Lass describes her values & journey: "Aside from being a medical doctor, I found my true calling when I started my first businesses (including a private medical practice Unego, where I still work with patients). That's when I found my true inspiration – everywhere I looked, I saw possibilities to improve lives and help people to obtain excellent mental fitness by teaching awareness-based intrapersonal skills. 

By learning practical intrapersonal skills it becomes possible to direct one's own awareness at will. Everyone can take their self-development to the next level, improve their life, professional career as a result of systematic intrapersonal education.

I consider life without knowing how to direct your own awareness at will an ultimate tragedy – it is the root of confusion, emptiness and unnecessary suffering. My own practice of awareness has resulted in being able to love learning and now I know that I can acquire any skill that I focus upon. It's also easy to discern what is important, spot trends and orient in fast-changing environments. I have learned to release my automatic emotional reactions, so there is no unnecessary leakage of energy, the bias in my perception or action.

Discovering and learning to direct our own awareness is the most basic intrapersonal skill. Understanding and leading our inner processes enables us to spot signs of stress and nip it in the bud. Intrapersonal education enables us to avoid burnout, anxiety, and depression. Lack of practical intrapersonal skills is the main contributing factor why we find ourselves in the midst of an unfolding mental health crisis. My aim is to change that by providing a proactive approach to mental wellness.

Success for me is to see people applying awareness-based intrapersonal skills for re-inventing their human capacity. Success for me is to see people who manage to stay mentally well while they face different pressures and deal with their professional challenges."

As a medical doctor, Dr Lass has been treating patients for over 10 years. However, in 2013 she stepped into the unknown and has since dedicated her work towards developing a new awareness based proactive approach to mental wellness and human capacity. Behind this revolutionary approach to the internal realm are the practical-life centric teachings of her main mentor and source of inspiration Ingvar Villido, a renowned awareness teacher with 25+ years of experience. 

Her aspiration is to lay a cornerstone for wider education on intra-personal skills and human capacity, easy to apply in practical work and life situations by everyone, so she developed the world's first fully digital mental wellness gym for teams.


In 2018 Routledge published globally her scientific paper 'Developing Intra-Personal Skills as a Proactive Way to Personal Sustainability - The Preventative Side of the Mental Health Equation' in a book ‘Personal Sustainability. Exploring the Far Side of Sustainable Development’.

Dr Lass has written several articles that open up pro-active approach to mental wellness they have been published around the globe: 

  • USA 
  • United Kingdom
  • New Zealand
  • India
  • South African Republic
  • Estonia etc.


This innovative approach to education about the intrapersonal bridges the gap between:

  • Work and life
  • Medicine and spirituality
  • Own needs, social and/or work contribution
  • Money and meaning

She desires people to be more satisfied in what they do, actively take part in life, suffer less as they discover ways to lead their inner processes.

Dr Lass is a well known and highly sought after public speaker on the topics of awareness and mental wellness. She has been speaking about the importance of proactive mental wellness in front of HR's, medical doctors, business leaders, etc. since 2013.
